Ebola: Fashola Says 5 Victims Are In Stable Condition

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola (SAN) has said five Nigerians among the 10 persons who tested positive to the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) are in stable condition.

He disclosed this at separate sessions with traditional rulers, religious leaders, local government chiefs and health workers in some local government areas and Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs).

He said the meeting was necessary to further educate the people on preventive measures on the Ebola virus.

“What is interesting is that we can confirm that the mortality rate is reducing by 90 per cent now. They are all in stable condition. Five of them are actually improving and I have been briefed now that one or two of them are walking around. The work is not finished. We are tracking more people who might have had contacts with that first person or who have had contacts with the people who contacted the first person,” Fashola said.

The governor said the disease is not a death sentence, if the people do the right things to avoid contracting it.
